My first guest is Austin Belcak, whose daily tips on Linkedin helps many job seekers to find and network with hiring managers to get the right position. He shares with us a 90-second networking tip.
Kevin Davenport, the author of “The Ideal Candidate,” is my second guest on this week’s episode. I got a chance to meet him on a radio show here in Chicago and kept in touch. Through his business and book, he has helped many young people between 16-24 learn job skills to help them prepare for interviews and get jobs.

More about Kevin:
By day, Kevin is the Program Manager for the Center of Entrepreneurship and Innovation at the Chicago Urban League. I went in to visit Kevin at the Urban League, who also has a Workforce Development program to help young people with job skills and interview preparation.
He kindly gave me a tour of the Urban League building. Many young people not only come to learn, but they also found opportunities through Urban League programs for many years. I’ll leave the details for the show as you’ll hear about some of his strategy helping future professionals as “secret sauce.”
